Upon the arrival of law enforcement, both children were swiftly transported to Norton’s Children’s Hospital in Louisville, a 30-minute journey, due to their gunshot wounds. The youngsters underwent immediate surgery, but unfortunately, by 2:50 p.m., the authorities confirmed the tragic news that the six-year-old and nine-year-old had passed away from their injuries.
